What make is it?

It depends on the monitor. Probably if you go into display properties, settings, it will be the max res. listed.

It may be on a data sticker on the monitor, or in the bumf supplied with it.

Resolution for a 17" tft monitor is 1280x1024

1280x1024 and also its a good idea to check that Clear Type is enabled.
Right click on desktop/
Left click on Properties/Appearance/Effects
Second box down select Clear Type

Are all 17" TFT's the same then?

As far as I am aware,since doing a little research earlier before buying my own.

I have a Dell 17" monitor and my setting is 1152 x 864. This is not the maximum resolution but I find it the most comfortable setting for general use.

My son also plays a number of hi-res games and has not complained.

Have just come across this and would think it depends on the monitors actual panel quality
